I recently lost my job and am going through a divorce with my wife. I decided to try my hand at daytrading for income so that I may work from home so I took out a very large loan. I am collecting unemployement so should I cancel my benefits? It really helps while I attempt to pay off the loan I took out since it is at a very high interest rate. I havn't started collecting yet I am still in my waiting period so I just wanted to ask before it becomes an issue. Thanks for your help.
If you are earning a reported income then you should not be accepting unemployment benefits, be careful and I hope that things get better for you and your family. take care.
